Guns
22F14: High Power Pump Action Revolver: A pump action that cocks a firing pin near the back of the gun with a string spun 180 degrees backwards then forwards again by two wheels. This design would be very efficient and therefore make the gun more powerful because it would eliminate bending that normally occurs in knex pump actions.
23F15: MG 210: This one works just like a baseball launcher. A full auto powered by motors located in the box labelled A. Box A will also house several gears that will be sequenced to increase speed. Large external gears or wheels will fire rounds as they drop between the gears. The magazine is gravity fed. The trigger will stop the rounds from falling out of the mag when released, and drop rounds into the firing mech while pulled.
24F15: MG 210: This drawing shows the rounds being fired by the counter spinning gears.
25F15: MG 210: This drawing shows how the trigger works by stopping rounds from falling into the firing mech.

Miscellaneous Weapon Designs
8G6: Power Adjuster: A ratchet controlled by a hand crank used to tighten the firing elastics after the firing pin has been cocked to increase the guns power. There would also need to be a ratchet release.

Ammo Feeding
9A8: Tilted Horizontal Mag: Rounds would be pushed along by an angled mag pusher. This design saves space and therefore increases capacity.

I am making a gun with a tilted horizontal mag. On my design,
there is a lever which pushes the bullet up into the chamber,
making it like a bolt action with minimal friction.

 zOMG! your handwriting is the same as mine!
(removed by author or community request)
hmmmm. I tried making that mech, but it needs to force it back to lock in place, so the trigger gets in the way of teh lever.
Lever action? You're too late. i've already constructed a true lever action, that works. check my video...

 no you should he is being cocky.

 gah! what with the third picture, it looks rather wrong.

Not new.
I've never seen the power adjuster done on a gun before.
And none of us will.
I'll try something like that later on... How about that?
Well good luck.
Not nice.




haha Jk :)

Also DGM, you seen my guns? i think you would be impressed.

Nice is best to be put aside in some situations.
Oblivitus (author)  Der Bradly4 years ago
The last two are.

LOL, third picture looks kinda dirty.
Oblivitus (author)  travw4 years ago
You're the second person to say that. -_-
travw Oblivitus4 years ago
Oops. =P

Still, it does.
HAHA :D

I like the pump action idea; it's simple, and it would surely increase ranges. Pumps rule!

The baseball launcher however... I don't think it would work. But there is only one way to find out...
Oblivitus (author)  TigerNod4 years ago
Take a look at Mepain's links.
Ah, I see.

What was the range of the second?
Mepain DJ Radio4 years ago
Not far enough to be bothered.
Oblivitus (author)  Mepain4 years ago
Oh, thanks for posting those, I didn't know about them. There still seems to be room for improvement on your versions though. The shotgun was messy and could be updated with a newer mag and the mg didn't have a mag or trigger.
He made that shotgun with a 50 round hopper.  And it was built in 2007.  I have no comment for the MG.
Oblivitus (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
A BR-18 revolver would be better.
You do realize that gun was made long before the BR's right?
Oblivitus (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
Of course,
take another look at my comment above;

"The shotgun was messy and could be updated with a newer mag"

PLEASE REPLY.

How far did the yellow rods go? 10 feet? 20? more? Please tell.
Very much appreciated.

Nice Ideas! They are all definitely possible. Has anyone done the horizontal angled mag yet? If not I will give an attempt...
Oblivitus (author)  noobererer4 years ago
Thanks, no one has posted it before. Go for it.
You can draw very good.=]
I also like the ideas.

Haha, you shouldn't say that, there are little kids around here!
You have to be 14 to be on this website with an account so nobody with an account should complain.
 :O shocking lol i prefer to not call it sick minded just...................imaginative
Oblivitus (author)  ant ant 334 years ago

 looks good. i will work on the machine gun.
Oblivitus (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
Check out Mepain's second link. He made the firing system before, but it didn't have a mag or a trigger.
You could easily put one on.  As well as a handle and sliding trigger.

how do you take such good pictures of your drawings!?!?!?!?!
Oblivitus (author)  mikstr24 years ago
I use macro mode on my camera, put my drawing under a lamp, turn the flash off,  take the picture, then I crop and increase the brightness and contrast on my computer.
wow... to bad i cant turn my flash off or at least i dont know how to.
:(
Oblivitus (author)  mikstr24 years ago
Cover the light with your hand or put a piece of duct tape over it.
that wont work. the camera will be screwed up and your pic will come out purple. i know a good bit about cameras.
Oblivitus (author)  KnexFreek4 years ago
Not if you use a lamp like I suggested.
that depends on the camera.

Mepain already made the pump action thingy back in 07.
Oblivitus (author)  DJ Radio4 years ago
Yeah, I just viewed his links.
And this is why I'm a fan of his works.  
Only the last 3 ideas are something I'd think about
GrandeSwag4 years ago
 Mepain already made a pump action like that. He also made a mg like that.
~KGB~4 years ago
this is great!
ant ant 334 years ago
 these are really good iddeas but im rubbish at inventing. i just make other ppl's guns lol
 I am going to attempt the power adjuster! *dramatic instrumental music*
Mr. Muggle4 years ago
that horizontal mag would be very difficult.
the launcher thingy would have very little power but pretty cool if you could build it into a machine gun or something similar
I like the pump action idea, that could work
the power adjuster is cool too
Oblivitus (author)  Mr. Muggle4 years ago
The launcher could be powerful with enough motors. It would be really big though, thus the bipod.
~Aeronous~4 years ago
 WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the horizontal mag is ingeneous! I had the same idea a while ago, but I didn't think about tilting the bullets! will make that!
Seleziona4 years ago
I really like the idea of the power adjuster on the ratchet....will think on that one!
